    The Dallas Cowboys capped off an exciting two-week layoff with a disappointing showing against the Tennessee Titans Color Rush Taco Charlton Jersey , losing 28-14. The Cowboys now sit at 3-5 and are two games behind the Washington Redskins. The Cowboys will go from one prime-time affair to another as they will be under the lights again next Sunday night when they travel to Philadelphia in what will be a big NFC East divisional battle. While it’s going to be an excruciating week until Sunday gets here, this one’s going to sting a bit. Here are my 10 thoughts on their game against the Titans.1. Honoring a Legend15 seasons, 1,152 catches, and 12,448 yards – Jason Witten was a special player for the Cowboys organization. And on Monday night, the front office paid a little tribute to the legendary tight end.2. Welcome to Dallas, AmariThe Cowboys new offensive weapon didn’t waste any time making a splash. On the team’s second possession, he caught a four-yard pass for the Cowboys first score of the game.Cooper finished with five catches for only 58 yards and looked like a good piece to this offense. Jason Witten would emphasize how well he breaks out of his route to create separation and it gave Prescott an open target. It’s a shame the Cowboys couldn’t utilize him more.3. Wasted opportunitiesThe Cowboys looked like they were going to roll the Titans after a first quarter that saw the Dallas defense recover two fumbles and set the offense up with three-straight red zone scoring opportunities. Unfortunately, Brett Maher missed a very make-able field goal and Dak Prescott threw into double coverage in the end zone causing the offense to come up empty on two of those possessions.In a game where the fans were feeling good early, that goodness went away as the Titans eventually tied it up and Dallas never had the lead again.4. Stop making terrible challenges!I don’t know who upstairs is responsible for signalling down to Jason Garrett to challenge the play, but they are not doing a good job. The Cowboys have had three-straight failed challenge attempts, and to be honest – they aren’t even that close.As Jason Witten mentioned in the broadcast , someone upstairs is going to get a talking to about this as those mistakes can come back to bite you.5. Couldn’t stop the Titans playmakersMarcus Mariota has been struggling all year, but wouldn’t you know it – he showed up against the Cowboys. Mariota was 21 for 29 for just 240 yards but was very efficient, averaging 8.3 yards per attempt. He stood in the pocket and delivered nice throws into tight windows. It was a good performance by the Titans young quarterback.Not only did Mariota played well, but the Cowboys couldn’t stop Dion Lewis either as he went toe-to-toe with Cowboys star running back Ezekiel Elliott. Both players had 50+ yards rushing and receiving and both players had a 37-yard reception. Lewis would out-scrimmaged Elliott 122 to 112.6. Offensive line struggles continueAmari Cooper wasn’t the only big change in Big D during the bye week. After offensive line coach Paul Alexander was fired, assistant coach Marc Colombo was promoted and former OL coach Hudson Houck was brought over to help.It started out looking good. In the first half, the group didn’t give up a sack and didn’t have any penalties. But in the second half, the wheels completely came off. Prescott was sacked five times, the penalties started, and the offense couldn’t sustain any drives. They couldn’t even protect Cole Beasley when they gave him a shot to throw the ball.First half:But then…7. Saved by the whistle?When Prescott had the ball stripped from him as he was trying to get away, the whistle blew in what appeared to be a blessing for the Cowboys. The whistle blowing has always meant the play was now dead, however somehow the officials decided to allow the play to continue.When it’s all said and done, the right call was made as it looked like a premature whistle in the first place, but I have never seen them let the play continue.8. Third-down dominanceThe Cowboys offense had all kinds of trouble moving the ball. They were absolutely terrible on third down Color Rush Brett Maher Jersey , only converting on 3 of 11 tries. It wasn’t enough that they weren’t converting, but sometimes it looked like they just gave up. I’m not sure why they love throwing a screen pass on third and long so much. I mean, at least try to make a play beyond the sticks.And as bad as the Cowboys offense was on third down, the Titans went the other direction as they were unstoppable. Tennessee finished 11-14 on the night. The Cowboys defense just couldn’t get off the field.9. Same old, same oldLast time we left this team, we watched an offense that couldn’t do anything. With some changes during the bye week, we came into this game with hope. To make matters worse, the Cowboys defense struggled to get off the field. It was as if we were watching a 3-5 football team.10. Respect the Star!On Sunday, Michael Thomas paid homage to a cell phone touchdown celebration from Joe Horn back in 2003. Kevin Byard channeled his inner Terrell Owens and decided to go stand on the star at midfield following his interception in the end zone. Maybe he forgot how that worked for TO because Byron Jones made sure to stop by and remind him that’s not cool.I love Byron Jones. Dak Prescott’s difficulties in the passing game go back further than a loss in the opener at Carolina for the Dallas Cowboys.Now that the slump has extended into a new season, coach Jason Garrett and his staff must weigh the factors and when or whether to make changes to try to fix them.Six sacks of Prescott and little running room early for star back Ezekiel Elliott magnified two significant questions on the offensive line.Most of the focus, though, will remain on a revamped and largely unproven group of receivers trying to replace tight end Jason Witten and receiver Dez Bryant.Then there’s the play-calling, with offensive coordinator Scott Linehan under siege from the unemployed Bryant on Twitter , along with the fans.”I have a tremendous amount of faith in Scott,” Garrett said Monday, a day after a 16-8 loss to the Panthers. “We just have to do a better job collectively as a staff and as an offensive unit. That starts with basic execution, play after play not beating ourselves and then finding ways to generate some big plays.”Going into a suddenly important home opener against the New York Giants on Sunday night, Garrett also sounds as if the Cowboys will stick with the same five on the offensive line.Joe Looney is replacing four-time Pro Bowl center Travis Frederick, out indefinitely with a condition that affects his nerves. Rookie left guard Connor Williams was beaten twice for sacks by Kawann Short.”Joe Looney … looked like he did a pretty good job in the game,” Garrett said. “Connor Williams, obviously it’s a challenging task for him Week 1 to go against that defensive front. There were some good things for him. There’s some areas in pass protection that wasn’t good enough.”Prescott had fewer than 200 yards passing for the seventh time in nine games. That stretch started when he was sacked a career-high eight times in a loss at Atlanta that triggered the Cowboys’ slide out of playoff contention last year. It was also the beginning of Elliott’s six-game suspension over domestic violence allegations.Elliott’s presence didn’t help much against the Panthers, and the question going forward is how the Cowboys can hope to live off the running game when they haven’t shown they can be a threat throwing the ball.Focused on stopping Elliott first, the Panthers held the 2016 NFL rushing leader to 18 yards before halftime. Nearly half of Elliott’s 69 yards, and his touchdown, came in the fourth quarter after the Cowboys had fallen behind 16-0.If the Cowboys want something resembling the remarkable rookie seasons of Prescott and Elliott two years ago, when they had an NFC-best 13 wins Color Rush Jaylon Smith Jersey , they will need bigger numbers from the focal point of their offense earlier in the game.”We’ve got to start faster,” Elliott said after the game. “That’s not Dallas Cowboys football. That’s not how we’ve ever played. If we want to succeed, if we want to go out there and win ballgames, we can’t come out there and lay an egg in the first half.”Filling the void left by Witten and Bryant will probably look a lot as it did in the opener, except for draft-day trade acquisition Tavon Austin getting shut out. re of a role.Holdover Cole Beasley had the most targets (eight), catches (seven) and yards receiving (73). The rest were split among newcomers Allen Hurns, Deonte Thompson and rookie Michael Gallup.No. 1 tight end Geoff Swaim had three catches, and backup Blake Jarwin was open for what would have been the biggest play of the game for Dallas if Prescott hadn’t underthrown him.”We think each of those guys has some strengths and they have some different things that they can bring to our offense,” Garrett said. “We do think as we go forward that mixing those guys in and giving them all an opportunity to contribute will be a good thing for our team.”The Cowboys have a long way to go to prove it.
